The kitchen is the heart of many a family home right? Well we have a VERY small kitchen. You would actually struggle to get our whole family in there! I have decorated it in light bright colours and try to keep the counters clutter free to make it feel bigger but there is no hiding that it is a tiny room.
Despite this we have a lot of fun in there. Meals are made, the kids help with the cooking (even though they have to sit on the counter leaving me with next to no space!!).
One of the additions I have made to the space over the last couple of years was a dishwasher. We got it before Jelly Baby was born and it is an absolute lifesaver not only because it washes up for me but also because it hides the clutter of the waiting washing up!! It is only a slimline one due to the little space but it really is a miracle appliance! We were sent some Fairy Dishwasher Platinum tablets to try as part of this challenge and they are really fantastic and help to make dishwashing even easier!
Here are some pics of our little but well loved kitchen…note that these are ‘real’ pictures. I literally just popped downstairs to take them – no tidying or props – simply our real family kitchen as it is everyday.
I guess the space is what we make of it – it may be small but it is well used and the kids love cooking with me in there – that’s what matters right?
